I don't mean to sound totally insensitive, but this quote from the mayor in L'Aquila Italy is just absurd ...

"For now the needs are basic. The people in the camps, they don't have toothbrushes, they don't have toothpaste," said Massimo Cialente, mayor of the hard-hit city of L'Aquila. "You can't find a place to buy cigarettes or get a coffee."

I didn't know that cigarettes and coffee were a basic need. Here I'd think water and shelter and food. silly me.
